TGS Weeklies featuring Dota 2 – Midas Mode Captain’s Draft
The first Dota 2 Captain’s Draft was great, but this time we’re upping the fun factor by introducing Midas Mode into the mix!
Unfamiliar with Midas Mode? No problem! In Midas Mode, Captains will start the event with a budget. Actions like drafting players for your team, drafting heroes, and banning heroes all have a cost to them. Leverage your budget wisely throughout the event to give yourself the best chances of winning!
Captain’s Drafts are the perfect opportunity to meet other members of the community and not worry about skill level! All players are welcome and encouraged to participate!
➡️ Entry Fee:
$15 per person
$20 per person
*Early Bird registration ends 9:00 AM the day before the event is scheduled. Registration will be available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. Players may be waitlisted until there are enough people for a team.
➡️ Tournament Format:
Doors open at 5 PM and teams will be drafted around 6 PM. The tournament will begin shortly after teams are made. There will be a round robin group stage, with a final match if there is time.
Captains will have a budget of 800 TGS points to start the event. There are no ways to earn more points, so they will have to choose when to spend and when to save.
The cost for drafting players is as follows:
Immortal: 250 Points
Divine: 200 Points
Ancient: 150 Points
Legend: 100 Points
Random: 50 Points
There is no cost to drafting a player below Legend rank.
Each hero will have a draft cost and a ban cost. Captains may choose to skip a ban at no cost. Captains may choose to randomly pick a hero at no cost. If a Captain runs out of points, they will have to pick the lowest cost hero available or choose to random.
In the case of a tie at any point in the tournament, the tiebreaker will be whichever team has more unused points.
DISCLAIMER: The exact format for the tournament may change and will be decided on the day of the event depending on the number of teams that sign up.
💰 Prize Pool: $320
